Just me then. Thanks for checking, anyway.
When I turn UAC back on (minimum level) and reboot, I get the following in this sequence:
1. Program Manager tells me that rainlendar2.ini is not writeable.
2. I get a "Rainlendar2 has stopped working" message:

3. I get a pop-up DEP message about Rainlendar2 in the bottom right.
I've just tried resetting some system settings to default in case it's something obscure, but I get the same issue on reboot.
I'm not sure what to try next. Yes, I would like Windows 7 or even 8 (maybe) but it's a matter of cost and hanging on to some very useful installed programs.
I'll turn UAC off again.
Thanks again for investigating, Rainy.
